Resorts in Mykonos

Whatever type of cheap holidays to Mykonos in 2017 you're trying to find, be it relaxed and romantic, family friendly, or all about the partying, you'll find it on this most enchanting of islands. As a general rule, destinations to the south of the island are a little more established with plenty of amenities and facilities, while the beaches and towns to the north are somewhat quieter, so it really just depends what you're after.

Mykonos Town

Mykonos Town is the well established beating heart of the island, and top of the list for most people on cheap holidays to Mykonos. While other locations nearby, such as the length stretch at Platys Gialos, secluded Agia Anna cove and bustling Paranga, may boast better beaches and have their own mix of boutique hotels, none rival the good vibes and air of 'well to do' found in Mykonos Town.

Spread across a mini peninsula, Mykonos Town is low lying, where white houses accessorised with cobalt blue doors and flowering bougainvillea crawl up and over the rocky landscape towards the iconic 16th century windmills. Yet, this postcard perfect Greek town is also a maze of cobbled streets and narrow lanes, and home to a hive of activity where you'll find most of the island's very best bars, restaurants, shops and cafes.

Head to the waterfront to mingle with the rich and famous, where you'll also find a wealth of cafes, restaurants and boutiques, while area of Little Venice has a refreshing blend of independent galleries and chic bars.

Ornos

A stone's throw from Mykonos Town, Ornos enjoys the best of both worlds, being a little quieter than its lively neighbour, while remaining within easy reach. It's especially good for families after cheap holidays to Mykonos, thanks to its gently sloping beach with calm warm waters, and excellent range of facilities.

Wander between the pretty white washed houses, try local tavernas, visit galleries and boutique shops, or take a trip to other Mykonos beaches to the south by water taxi from the working harbour at the far end of the bay.

Plati Yialos

Famed for its long stretch of platinum white sand, Plati Yialos is also a hit with families and couples on cheap holidays to Mykonos. Here you'll find numerous independent hotels, as well as a cluster of beachfront bars, tavernas and shops. There are plenty of opportunities to take part in water sports or visit other beaches on the island by water taxi.

Kalo Livadi

Peaceful, traditional and unscathed in terms of huge development, Kalo Livadi is really rather rural with only a handful of hotels and guesthouses sandwiched between the hillside and the sea. The real appeal here is the stretch of beach, which remains hidden from many of the tourists that flock to the island on cheap holidays to Mykonos.

You'll find a relaxed sandy beach with shallow waters and enough sunloungers to go around, there's even water sports options, and a select few tavernas, bars and cafes lining the edge of the beach. For those after a touch of culture, head to the nearby town of Ano Mera to see the 18th century monastery with its impressive marble fountain, while those after the action can nip to Mykonos Town just six miles away.
